Vets in Training School Programs

Vets in Training is a multi-faceted STEAM program, offering a variety of after-school programs, full day programs, assemblies, special needs classes, and custom programs. Our expertise is in creating individualized programs that will fit the unique needs of your curriculum and students.

Our certified teachers and veterinary technicians (who have experience teaching) do this through group work, active and experiential learning sessions, and with tools and our traveling animals  that engage the intellect and senses of our students. The work we do in our classes often feels like play, but students gain real-world knowledge in many fields of study, reinforced by active learning and the direct interaction with our animals. The animals who are part of our program are fully vaccinated, are comfortable in the classroom and enjoy the interaction with children. All materials used in our programs are provided by us, and we’re happy to add insurance waiver coverage to schools who need it. 

Call Vets in Training to lock in your one-day field trip to our VIT location, or to book our field trip to you! Classes held at your location for day events.
Weekly camps held at  schools, daycare programs, and preschool locations-contact us for more information or book your session now!

Children are fascinated by animals and display a deep passion for animal welfare and well-being at an early age. The HousePaws Vets in Training Program embraces the human-animal bond through interaction and education.

By providing hands-on experienced-based education to each student in the program, the children are empowered to explore the human-animal bond and the many facets of veterinary medicine.
